Title: bpd1151's 2010 SHO Rebuild Thread....
Post by: bpd1151 on July 24, 2019, 12:03:50 PM
Reserving this space for any/all updates pertaining to the rebuild of my 2010 SHO following the catastrophic failure while my SHO was at Livernois Motorsports.

I've chosen to utilize an entirely different vendor for the rebuild. Max Power Automotive located in Lockport, IL.

Although I don't do FB, here is a link for those guys that do:

https://m.facebook.com/Maxpowerautomotive/

Moving along, the motor has been completely torn down, and the results of which are located in a thread I started titled "A sad, sad day in the history of my SHO".

We are aiming for between 1,000 and 1,100 horsepower with this build.

The block has currently been shipped off for closed decking.

All new internal parts will be utilized and we will be having all of those internals treated with a "WPC Treatment". More info on that, can be had here:

http://www.wpctreatment.com/#

Click on the "About WPC" tab on their homepage.

Additionally, I will be purchasing a new PTU, and having that disassembled and sent off for the same treatment process described above.

I plan on ordering a PI alternator as well, in order to handle the electrical stress from audio system sufficiently.

Currently in the process of researching trans upgrades as well, even if it need be custom.

More info to follow as it occurs.

I've been busy working a butt load of overtime (which is something I previously chose never to do) but given the costs that lie ahead, well worth the effort IMHO.

Anyhow, I hope everyone's well and enjoying their Summer respectively. Kind of bummed about this entire show/track season likely being a wash. But, I have goals to achieve in my crosshairs, and my motivation to come back even better than before, have me grounded and focused!

As always, stay tuned.......

You're way off on your guesstimates Mr. Wood. Rumor has it...3 hairdryers, NOS, meth and a roots blower for instant off the line torque. Also, is working closely with Jordan on weight reduction techniques. Hey...that's just what I heard but I ain't one to gossip.

This car is too iconic to be sent to pasture. Will be glad to see it come back on the street where it belongs!

Oh, almost forgot.....

The plans are to also USE the DW Injectors as well.

Just because one company can't tune with them, doesn't necessarily mean others cannot.

DW claims a max flow rate of 30% greater than the OEM Injectors.

Again, AT MAX.

So certainly not like these caused any fuel wash of the cylinders as originally believed. Never any evidence of that as it was learned.

So, sending them off to the same company that re-worked my OEM's in Ohio, to have the DW's looked over, new o-rings, balanced and flow tested. Make sure they're all good to go once again.

Nice to see the excitement and enthusiasm. Appreciate all the continued interest!

They are excellent injectors and the plug and play data is readily available from DW and sct to plug into the software to use for your strategy....any sct tuning dealer has access to the data in their software

The needed injector data for the calibration has actually been available for a few years

Thanks to everyone for subscribing, posting of positive comments, all the support, etc.

The road ahead is filled with challenges for sure.

Goals are set for reasons. Hopefully they can be achieved.

Been logging lots of overtime hours at work to offset current, and anticipated costs.

Given it's August, the likelihood of the car being completed this year is NOT LIKELY.

I'm hopeful though for Spring of 2020.

Fingers crossed and updates will be posted as they occur.

08/09/2019 --- Ordered the new PTU replacement and the Police Interceptor alternator for my SHO.

BOTH are due in early next week.

Alternator will sit and collect dust so to speak, while other aspects keep chugging along.

PTU will immediately be brought to the machine shop performing my rebuild, so that they can disassemble it, and prep it for the WPC Treatment (previously discussed) to coincide with treating the various internal engine bits.

Slow progress, but progress nonetheless.

Also have some inquiries into (possible) trans upgrades.

Trying to budget ahead of time, while continuing to submit myself to slavery type hours of overtime at my employer.

I've been blessed with more hours than I anticipated. Which is good for the pocket, but bad for the body.

Motivation's still burning strong, so ahead I forge. Hope everyone's well and enjoying their Summer.

I'm living vicariously through all of your posts about your experiences, so even though I don't reply as often as in years past, know that I'm reading each of them, and smiling.

. . . . Just got these sent to me from the machine shop. Literally. Engine has returned to their facility. Full closed deck completed. Yea baby.

I asked what was next in the process, and he replied with the following (in quotes).....

"I'm waiting for the pistons, so then I can hone the block and set my piston too wall clearance. Then resurface the engine block and align hone the mains with the arp studs".

Enjoy the car porn fella's. Exciting times on the horizon. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190819/0ecf41ac15411e03b5626ed919340138.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190819/7c77a410f5c2f3fb094b8e22853bef37.jpg)

Briefly texted with machine shop owner yesterday, 09/05/19......

He said that he has disassembled the heads, and has begun the porting and polishing.

Currently waiting on pistons to arrive. Once they do, he'll be able to begin the remaining machine work on the block.

Also, I am going to have the valve covers and intake plenum PC'd this time around. Not sure about what else to do in the visual arena as pretty much everything else is mostly out of sight.

Also, my local mechanic pal / friend is still awaiting return call from trans vendor he sourced. If that doesn't pan out, I have two other's waiting in the wings for me to call.

Just thought to provide an update. Happy Friday and hope everyone enjoys their upcoming weekend.

Oh, btw, I also asked/prompted/nudged the machine shop owner to send more engine porn pics to follow along in the process. Told him I'd appreciate seeing them, as would all of you. Forgot to add that bit.

Sent off my core TC to GH today and have ordered up his company's upgraded TC offering for our beloved SHO platform.

 Spoke to machine shop owner today, who said he's "getting close" to sending parts off for the WPC Treatment. He asked where the new PTU was/is at?

Had to get on the horn w/mechanic pal, who told me FMC shipped him a new one that was sans the drain plug. He sent it back, and the correct one is now on it's way.

I told machine shop owner about this, and then I pestered him for more "porn pics". To which he chuckled and promised me he'll remember to take some, and to send them my way, for everyone's ogling edification.

Spoke directly with Dakota Bowman, in the tech dept. over @ Deatschwerks and confirmed the fitment of the following upgraded LPFP. Ordered same today.

https://www.deatschwerks.com/9-307-1026

Also hit up Matt @ Gearhead today, and learned that my pending order for their company's upgraded TC is in progress now. Hopefully shipping out by week's end.

Also, had my transmission palleted up, strapped down, and loaded up for freight delivery to a vendor in MI. for reworking/upgrading. Deposit placed and more details to follow as those develop.

Finally, also spoke to machine shop owner performing my motor rebuild, and asked on any progress since our last communication. He replied that he is currently working on the porting and polishing of the heads. Informed me that the couple of ports that he has touched, are now flowing 20cfm's greater than stock, throughout the entire range.

So given the factory design is already fairly decent to begin with, this improvement will enhance and contribute to overall performance. Just another piece of the puzzle.

Still waiting on porn pics. Hopefully soon!

I am VERY curious if with better connecting rods, piston caps and better flowing ports if you can get above the all mighty 6300/6400 rpm limit where the stock systems fall in their faces.

Received the new, upgraded TC from GH. It's a 3 bolt design, which is most common.

I sent in a core that had a 4 bolt design, which was/is used on the 2010 "Job 1" builds as well as the majority of the 2010 "Job 2" builds.

No biggie really. It simply requires a change in the flywheel.

There's no (performance) difference between a 4 bolt, versus 3, and vice versa.

Anyhow, looking forward to the inclusion of another piece of the puzzle and kudos to Matt over at GH for bringing this aspect of improvement to the platform.

Oh yea, and the black paint is a nice finishing touch. Not that I, or anyone else will see it once installed mind you. But for those like me in the rust belt and winter season, it's a nice added touch to what I expect will be a great product.

DW LPFP, and the DW Injectors still in the shipping process. Hope everyone has a nice weekend.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190921/710f0727ae0dee26c1fbc89863f263e0.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190921/df718e6a0d0f04484860365d1b3337a7.jpg)

Continuing along with ancillary part upgrades.

Ordered this today.......

Once it arrives, gonna bring it on over to the machine shop to have them port match and polish to the intake plenum.

Another piece of the overall puzzle positioned into the picture.

Just thought to share. Oh, and btw, thank you to each/all of you for the positive comments and suggestions posted thus far.

Helps keep me motivated, all the while continuing to distance myself from past, poor experiences. Thank you all!

Placed my order for a new set of PPE DP's over this past weekend.

Once they're done w/ production, they'll be drop shipping them over to JET-HOT, where a 2500 degree ceramic coating in bright white will be applied. Then once JET-HOT's done, they'll be shipped to me.

Big thanks to the Prentis brothers, Paul and Eric for their involvement in this rebuild. I look forward to their talents being applied respectively.

Also, thanks to Ashley B. over at JET-HOT for their involvement as well.

More pieces of the puzzle my friends!

I like that it's a family business. Brother owned and operated. A big plus in my opinion.

They've been great thus far!

Custom set?  IIRC you have custom 3" catless to custom 3" exhaust.  Not downsizing to 2.5" or?  That thermal coating is awesome!  Something I need to do eventually.  Better than any wrap.

My current DP's were/are the literal very 1st set ever fab'd for the platform.

Made by Kirk Doucette owner of the now defunct NESHO (Northeast SHO) as well as former past National SHO Club President.

They're definitely not 3", and as I mentioned to the Prentis brothers, I'm sure there's been quite a bit of improvement in the 9yrs that have past, since my original's were made.

As far as the JET-HOT Coating, I'm hopeful it turns out as good as to be claimed. I'll find out eventually, ha!

Stopped by the machine shop today. Essentially just to drop off the bigger TB from BBK and to say hi and shoot the $h!t for a few minutes.

The owner has begun the port matching and polishing of the intake.

Said he noticed an inordinate amount of casting marks, blemishes and imperfections from the factory. He suggested porting and polishing the ENTIRE inside of the intake, which would require cutting it open, in order to gain unfettered access as needed.

He'll weld it back together afterwards, then send it off for powder coating.

A few before and in progress pics for y'all to ogle.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191003/c9d0546197eba32c50bf31342c203a79.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191003/cf064d951aba06f71be775220bb266b9.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191003/7eac3ce94b5d1608e804fc34433675f3.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191003/f5115b22e580dd6d42b13e52ecd5fdf8.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191003/32855e7a333211ff612dc5cef2e3ea9c.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191003/a7adcb5e93372f366f4c17b2d9c886c4.jpg)

Ha. Kind of my mindset at this point. Like "F*** It, I've come this far, might as well".

Although I don't necessarily know if this is the mod that pushes it over the proverbial edge exclusively. Rather just another in a collection of them factored into an overall build.

The inside of the intake is incredibly rough! That was a really good idea of this guy you're using to smooth it out like he did; I'm impressed!!.

I know how important it is on so many different cars to have an intake that that is done properly, especially when boosted. The question is, do you know how much this particular mod will add to the over-all HP numbers you are going after? I know the bigger the HP numbers the more important a properly done intake is.

I'm wondering what a mildly modified SHO's HP numbers might be with just a modified intake like this your's would be?  BIG thanks for posting all these pioneering things!

@griggs......

Thanks, and I'll have to ask.

Given that I'm touching upon pretty much every possible aspect of the build, it may be challenging to arrive at a specific HP number increase, but I'll ask and re-post.

I'm going to imagine that it would be the machine shop owner's best guess of an average range or value if you will, based upon his year's of experience.

Answer to question #1:

"The hp gains are all related too the application and the supporting modification done to the motor but on a application as your build gains are going to be ruffly 15-25hp."

Answer to question #2:

"As for the weld getting through to the inside. It doesn't when u weld aluminum  you dont want full penetration to the point of "sugaring" on the inside. What that does is it weakens the base material around the weld and will likely fail. The strenght of the weld is done with the filler material added to the surface of the weld. So as for the inside it will just be a slim line that wont effect flow at all."

Question #3 has yet to be answered.

Figured I'd copy/paste (and post) the replies he has provided thus far.

Hope that's of some help.

With your build plans, I wouldn't be surprised if you get the full 25 HP. As much as you may have spent on the intake alone, I still like to consider that upgrade as "free" ponies lol.

Got more intake porn pics that were sent to me earlier today. Still a work in progress mind you, as the machine shop owner said that these are just roughed in with a carbide bit. More finishing work yet to be completed. But thought I'd share with y'all.

Machine shop owner also seems to be getting more and more excited as he continues immersing himself into this project.

He stated the following: "Just wait till you see the heads. I dont want to release and pics til I do some more testing on the flow bench but they are becoming quite the monster. Just been modifying and testing, modifying and testing, and we are still seeing improvements across the board! You will receive data sheets as well, of the flow data."

He did educate me about etiquette as it relates to the posting of the pictures of the heads (when ever they are sent to me) explaining that porters in the industry don't typically like sharing such imagery, as that is "like gold" to them. But he followed up with saying that he wouldn't necessarily mind as he doesn't have much in stake in this platform. Most of his work is in/on the import scene. So I'll discuss with him further.

I did relate to him that it's nice to begin getting excited about the car once again, as it has been a pretty depressing season for me since the failure and having outlayed lots of money to date, with results merely trickling in. But in the same token, I also understand that's the sacrifice needed for such intricate work.

To which he replied the following: "Well I know I would be if this was my project, because your doing this to this platform that hands down, no one has ever done. I am talking motor wise. I have done my homework and the intensity and details in work, port work, and treatment technology. No one on your platform has done."

We concluded with me saying that I hope any future consideration to be part of the "Featured Vehicle" display at the Ford National's would (hopefully) be accepted, as in theory, the investment of time, talent, and treasure will be leaps and bounds of where it was at, prior to this same event for 2019 (& I was accepted, but unable to attend due to the failure).

Which he commented: "Yea I think with the reborn of this car, and all the modifications done, that it should be accepted no problem. And at that point its like a piece of art!".

So just thought to provide an update. Hope everyone's doing well.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191010/1a765a06235f3b604ac69e363ffef4fc.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191010/4a3dcad3fc425f81a89cf206405d9c5e.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191010/74f7bfbbbca58cdbc4d2083da9439d07.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191010/acde916e5b70fbf6e7f5d0e82d9143c1.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191010/574624d6b2ea093b13f0ff8acfba15e7.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191010/74ac21579c4c4d1749863c15c1531d8e.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191010/ce8bf1da1e62e4fae5aafd6d8de140bd.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191010/df1726662cbcfc2e7ccc33a397dbccc8.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191010/3f4738acf8ff98171d6fbd8fd5ff3151.jpg)

A few things to report since last update.

Machine shop is chugging along on the porting/polishing of the heads..... advising that with each successive effort, followed up by placing heads on bench and flow testing, they're continuing to see repetitive improvements. Shop owner said he's really impressed with the head design as msg'd by FMC, but commented that the gains he's seeing, are astounding. So pretty happy about that development. A solitary, in progress pic was sent and is shown below.

Also, fellow SHO owner Andrew B. (his SHO depicted below) also was instrumental in developing the lower front end splitter for our platform, and I am proud to report that Andrew is finalizing product development, and is ready to ship out orders for same. I've paid for mine in full, and am awaiting delivery to my residence, after the upgraded, Carbon Fiber rods come in. Thanks Andrew!!

I also have an inquiry into PPE Engineering that is awaiting a response as of this posting, inquiring if they would like me to ship to them, my OEM Exhaust Manifolds, to allow them to personally look over same, to see if any improvement can be had on them. If not, then I'll just have them sent to JET-HOT for their ceramic coating applied, just like the DP's will be that PPE is developing for me.

Haven't heard any updates yet from the trans vendor who has my transmission. So that's still in limbo.

What else?? Oh yea, my long time mechanic pal is relocating to a different facility, due to his current property owner nearly doubling his rent. As such, he has requested that the shell of my SHO be flat bedded over to my residence so that I can store in my own garage, to prevent any issues/unintended damage, etc.

I told him sure thing. I also mentioned that doing so will allow me to clean up the engine bay and whatnot, in great detail, since it's an empty shell of an opening.

That's pretty much it for now. As I stated previously,  hope everyone's doing well and Happy Halloween to all!

11/15/19.......

Been a lil quiet as of late.

So I texted the machine shop owner twice for updates, and his reply is posted as a screenshot.

That reply was on Wednesday evening, and I was waiting for pics to arrive today as is stated in his message, but alas nothing came across my phone.

So figured I'd at least post up the info that he did provide me.

Moving along,  I received the new Reische 170 Thermo, as well as the custom made splitter for the front bumper and carbon fiber rods as well.

I immediately brought them over to the body shop along with my front bumper cover, and dropped both off for them to handle.

I am having them remove the near 7yr old 3M Clear Bra paint protection film which began to yellow,  and having them repair/repaint both the entire front cover (couple areas where big rocks penetrated the film and knicked the paint) as well as having them repair/repaint the existing lower front chin spoiler PRIOR TO them installing/attaching/fastening the new splitter to the spoiler.

Also having them repair/repaint the outer frames of BOTH the upper AND lower custom grilles, as those were never clear bra'd, and they each have their share of accumulated rock dings, blemishes etc.

Once all that's done, then gonna have to wait 30 days before having it all re-clear bra'd once again.

Also learned that PPE finished my pipes, and they were just shipped out today, via FedEx to JET-HOT for the next part of the process.

Also am looking into having the factory exhaust manifolds undergo a process called "extrude honing" for better flow and removing any factory imperfections. Researching vendors currently. Also placed an inquiry into JET-HOT to see if they can also apply their 2500 degree coating to the manifolds, and their heat shields.

Finally, I learned from my long time mechanic  pal/friend, that he contacted the vendor who has my trans, it's been taken apart and is undergoing inspection now to see what is what and where and blah blah blah. So that's beginning to make some progress.

Snail's pace it seems. But there's so much going on, and all in separate ways, that it's becoming challenging to keep track of.

That's it for now. Hope this finds everyone well and enjoy your upcoming Thanksgiving holiday!(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191115/2dcb303baf70a6b81aa1987bc3af253c.jpg)

Ok, so I found out why the recent silence from the machine shop. I awoke this morning to more engine porn pics.

The pics were a (very pleasant) surprise, and I did not realize the shop owner had been doing this.

Extreme valve modifications. Now I have the tech info on the various degrees and what not for all of the following:

 Valves, seat cuts, back cuts, contact patches, and full radius info on exhaust seats, but I am withholding that info as I am trying to be respectful to the machine shop owner.

But pics posted below, say it all. Very obvious to even the untrained eye.

He also sent some pics over on the continued modification of the heads, individual bowls, and how they are continuing to show repeated increased flow/improvement with each/every subsequent revision.

We also chatted up about the factory exhaust manifolds. I'm consolidating the convo severely, to simply report that this same shop will be fabricating completely one off, custom manifolds. Which when done, will also be ceramic coated with the JET-HOT 2500 degree thermal coating.

HUGE DEVELOPMENT on this last part, and as far as I know, will be a platform 1st for the GEN4/GEN5 SHO.

To see the level of excitement and enthusiasm on the shop owner's face, is truly something to witness. Downright infectious and it is beginning to make me even that much more excited as things seem to finally be coming along,  after me having crapped out a lot of money the past several months.

More info and pics forthcoming as they are provided to me. Everyone enjoy your weekend!(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191116/95716c8fbe570df1d1ba881cc6fb9d62.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191116/88e08ccce79cac0d2ea034714046b2be.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191116/0c2975a0b780ad0f87f125dc879faeae.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191116/1132351247ac0ca2b06774b97b75c623.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191116/0247b792091a4552e479d1f69d93142f.jpg)

Of all the things you've posted, I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with the exhaust manifolds. I seem to recall the factory manifolds as being double walled and prone to delamination on the interior surface, so besides any positives in flow, the fact that you won't need to worry about fod damage to the turbos has to be a good thing. Next years going to be a trip.

More pics from the machine shop arrived a lil bit ago.

Depicting the MASSIVE differences between a stock, untouched exhaust port, versus a custom, heavily modified one.

My God, even to my untrained amateur eyes, the differences are vast. Machine shop owner stated he's incredibly impressed with the new flow #'s.

Also, PPE has completed my DP's and have shipped them to JET-HOT. JET-HOT confirmed receipt and indicated they are already in processing, and have a tentative completion/ship out date of December 12th, 2019. I asked for "in progress" as well a few completion pics, and Ashley @ PPE stated that wouldn't be a problem.

Also, confirmed with machine shop owner that the new, custom, one off exhaust manifolds will *NOT* conflict with fitment as it relates to bolting up the new DP's to same. Adding that he is making custom jigs (one for each side) and developing tubular type manifolds that will completely eliminate all the hang up and poor flow of the OEM's.

So a few more updates. Little by little fellas.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191120/75c285b7588e22e79dfcd170cb121c33.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191120/986825215e453268fc2fbb7465300d93.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191120/113efb71f0f092ba025900cc1771bff5.jpg)

So as I am new again, meaning with all new drive components.
Any chance your engine guy would reproduce the exhaust manifolds
for the common man (and what would be the damage for a set)?

I will ask, after he actually fabricates a set for me. I mean after all, it would make sense (at least to me) for him to do so, as he'll have custom jigs made for each side.

I'll repost here his reply when it becomes available.

12/03/19......

Reached out to the machine shop today inquiring about any progress/updates.

Figured it'd be slow given the recent holiday, and likely will continue to be slow given Christmas and New Year's is quickly approaching.

I did hear from the body shop however and apparently the (several years) old 3M paint protection film was a real b*tch to remove. Took nearly a full day to do so. They also stated it peeled all the paint off. Yikes! Which was/is fine, cuz it's getting entirely re-worked/re-painted anyhow for anticipated mounting of the custom splitter. But yea, I'm not even sure if any of that product was designed to be removed anyhow.

She's being prepped for priming now.

I also will be going with an entirely new product, which is a ceramic film called "Xpel Ultimate Plus". Guaranteed to never fade/discolor for the life of the film, and also is designed in some chemical/molecular way, in order to allow removal (w/o any damage to underlying paint) if it should ever be necessary to do so.

A picture of the pamphlet is displayed. Feel free to visit their website for details.

Hope to have more (engine) porn pics for the community soon. Hope everyone's well.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191203/b0cf679ee34b5f44ac58818975bb02ad.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191203/ea52cedb6b2c61220eb88d3cae066f10.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191203/34df8b1ba46a8b202b0877275deec8d0.jpg)

The clear bra/paint protection film should come off without causing damage however bc of the amount of time it was on your car (7 years?), it makes sense to me it would have been nearly bonded to the surface, but still surprising.

Well, paint protection film has come a looooooonnnnggggg way in 7yrs time.

3M had problems with theirs, cuz from what I understand, they never formulated the adhesive for removal.

The problem is compounded when anything other than factory paint is in play. Which is/was the case w/ my front bumper cover.

A few years back, I hit the mother of all raccoons that i swear was the size of a damn miniature horse. Damn thing darted out right in front of my path of travel, as it was attempting to retrieve a discarded bag of McDonald's.

Needless to say that was its' last meal. And also meant I needed a new chin spoiler, and new front bumper cover. Which was painted aftermarket.

So umm, yea. That's it in a nutshell. l'm told the new films are made to allow removal, without damage to the substrate/underlying paint.

I remember reading about the infamous Racoon encounter you had.  I believe it's in your "How To" install the Front Chin Spoiler.  That's crazy. 

I started learning how to tint windows 4 years ago, I "figured" that 3M stuff should come off.
I didn't know they had issues before but I've had plenty of fun trying to remove headlight and taillight film.  Seems like they go overboard with the adhesive as I've had the film seperate from the adhesive while trying to remove it leaving ALL of the adhesive.  Working it slowly with a steamer seems to be the way.

Like you said, perfect timing bc its getting repainted anyway!  I think that qualifies as a win win.

CUSTOM EXHAUST MANIFOLDS!

Jigs are being set up now, and exhaust manifolds are being prepped to be all cut up and rebuilt from scratch. All by hand!

Machine shop owner stated that he can, and I quote "most definitely can make more in the future". So good news on that front for those of you interested in investing in a future mod. No price point obviously, as it is way to early in the game for that, and no, I am not disclosing what the estimate is for me alone. Sorry. But not really. LOL.

For reference, 1/2" thick steel as support and a 3/4" inch thick base plate. Nice!!!! (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191205/2c52a21e3c573b42fd055e84a3d614e1.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191205/8473fbd92b130997b7231077b5ba44e6.jpg)

@ 802...... Thanks man. One never knows what the future holds for her. Although being in print would be stellar! It's uncharted territory for sure.

Will keep thread updated accordingly.

Meanwhile, I'm out in the garage working on the middle child's new to her '14 Focus SE w/ "appearance package" that we picked up for her last Saturday. 43k on the clock. New rotors and pads installed. New tires. Fluids swapped and washed it. Thoroughly. Including detailing engine bay and interior. Had windows tinted @ 20% for her. Getting ready to wax and detail exterior now. Fun little car.

This, in comparison to mine, that's hibernating on the other side of the garage, collecting dust and dismantled as expected.

**SIGH**. Someday baby, we'll get her road worthy once again.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191206/ea6e5a9c68f0f813d82aacc86430b9f8.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191206/244790e12177185d2aa43e4bdb1d0077.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191206/2e3f663cff82f4cabe76dc64f5eae978.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191206/76fb5742744e0c7be8ed7555cfc2ffa0.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191206/ed68da6a119835a16b5531e714c5d6df.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191206/5be5bd9d321f7b1a2848c00954c80593.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191206/8162378e895266ed838ea708f62b1710.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191206/cc62a788a94ba72bdcb86fb9dd2d7596.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191206/b323a49b404dd4bfba4fbe5d868f5d1f.jpg)

It was my understanding that the manifolds were a two piece design (inner and outer shells), and that the inner was prone on some years to delaminating and being ingested by the turbo? Are they removing the inner portion, leaving only the outer shell and flanges?

Correct. A completely new, hand built / fab'd tubular design. 1st to the platform to my knowledge.

I'm not the mathematician in regard to this, but my own observation of the carbon rings burned in on either side of the flanges where they mount, showed at least a 1/4" of obstruction where the air is literally hitting a steel wall. That will be eliminated entirely from my understanding with the new manifolds.

Intake manifold has been completed. In its' entirety and has been sent to powder coater.

Have been told that in order to aid in atomization of the Methanol, an 80 grit medium finish was chosen for final finishing.

Also, the one image with the bore scope is verification that the welding did *NOT* burn through.

Can't wait to see it returned from the powder coater. Impressive work to say the least.

In addition to the above, I heard from the body shop separately this morning and the bumper cover is being painted today with the proper "UG" paint code. I asked for more pics as the progress continues on that front. So hopefully more forthcoming as requested.

Hope everyone's well.

A few more pics of front bumper cover and the upper/lower grilles having been repaired/repainted.

Was told the custom splitter is being prepped for paint today, and should be being mounted to the existing lower chin spoiler/ bumper cover soon. Exciting!!

Really happy with how it's turned out thus far. Removing the old paint protection film was quite the undertaking.

After the proper curing time, I plan on using a newer and better product from "Xpel" for paint protection film.

Front bumper nearly complete, w/splitter installed. They're just finishing up placing that protective stripping on the outer edge. Turned out better than I hoped! So sharp!

Also, heard from my own personal mechanic today, who provided very little info after hearing from trans vendor. Said overall, trans was/is, in surprisingly great shape. Which I was relieved to hear. Vendor said he noticed some small scoring in the trans pump itself, and moving forward, has begun looking around for what can be done to upgrade it. Said a brand new pump alone from Ford was/is a tick over $1k. Vendor told him there were/are upgraded clutches available, and will be used given the stated (& hopeful) goals of power/torque. So that was it. I thanked him for what he was able to find out. Even if it was limited in scope. Least I know that that front is (finally) moving forward as well.

Downpipes scheduled to arrive via UPS today. Also went and had all the intake plumbing, and hot pipes re-powered coated so those'll look all purdy and shiny and new.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191213/65e5bb12f55f957332be3044ef3f3a35.jpg)

So I just messaged the guy that made that boosted 350r plate I was asking if he could make one with the twin turbo ram horns and he said he has a picture of a Taurus already that he uses for the Subaru guys that I think maybe better and have it say Taurus underneath. Just because I want to be more stealth about being turbo.
Problem though is the Subaru star works for me because I own a Subaru also and have love for Subaru so I kinda like it.

^^^This is actually VERY TRUE^^^

When you have a team of judges, each assigned to a specific area of focus, that either check off, or rate on a scale those assigned areas, it can get very nitpicky.

Even more challenging when a car is a top contender. As they tabulate scores, and narrow the field, teams will go back and re-visit let's say the top 3 point earners, they scrutinize those same top 3 a 2nd time, being even more critical the second time around.

It's interesting to watch. I've learned a lot over the years. Not just with this project car either. Good call Brian.

You'll like xpel. I have it on the Yukon XL from the doors forward. Just have the rear quarters, hatch and rear bumper. I won't do the roof, it's too large. The front has been protected from Northern VA and DC rock chips. Did (minor) paint correction before the film went on and ceramic after. So shiny and clean and protected.

Oh I even had film out on the inside door sill to help prevent scratches from people entering and exiting.

That's excellent to hear 1st hand experience with that product, and that you've been happy with it.

I was already beyond any warranty period with the old, 3M Clear Bra, so I already knew the last 2 seasons it needed to be replaced.

No better time to tackle that aspect of the project than now. Particularly knowing the car was/is down for an extended period.

Custom EM's in development. Some progress pics, along with a couple of pics showing the impeccable weld work.

12/16/19 *BONUS*.......

Repair, repaint of bumper cover and then the install of splitter, with CF rods is now complete. In its' entirety, and has been retrieved and brought home.

Where it is now resting/hibernating comfortably in my basement, atop the pool table. Hahaha.

Tried to get a couple of side shots to help show just far out the splitter extends. Hopefully it can be seen.

Like I stated the other day, turned out even better than I had expected.

The Splitter/Front Clip looks AWESOME!  That custom Exhaust Manifold is BEEFY....not only performance/power but the sound....man what will this Exhaust sound like now?  The welds are beautiful.  Skilled metal fabrication and welding is ART!

Thanks. It is impressive to see the updates and progress, as they are provided to me.

I'm equally impressed with the talents and craftsmanship being performed.

As far as the sound? Hmmm..... never even dawned upon me to think of that aspect of it until you just mentioned it now. No clue.

Suppose we'll all find out.

I do recall, as most of you will likewise, that sitting stationary/parked, our cars, even when revved up, leave something to be desired. Stock, or modified.

I'll have to try and obtain a drive by pic as the exhaust note seems to sound "throatier" under load.

I wish my SHO had trans warp capabilities akin to the latest iteration of the Enterprise.

But unfortunately, not sure if the tech is quite there yet for that.

Maybe if it is, the government's hiding it in/at Area 51? .

Some more work being done on the custom Exhaust Manifolds today. Just got the following pics and message from the machine shop owner.

He stated the following....

Quote: "Some measurement pics for the masses.

Entry to the port almost stayed the same size. Only changed .030 in one direction from the porting done on it, and a constant tubing size of 1.592.

Which increases the runner area by almost 20 percent". ----End Quote.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191221/47ca132b79fe70c36f5e48c2f58e1ed7.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191221/d13d52d832b4a3fd324f9f485e6e7388.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191221/2c2a880d7cdff3c192b15a3058ca2363.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191221/fa547c46d55672d0b407f7ca5b6a4150.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191221/5b1800ebfc769ea1cfbcfca06451f21a.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191221/3674b3b39e64ac83e54e8c72958adcca.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191221/8954139edb99e30a36e47ecd3194d1a2.jpg)

I think a 20% increase in flow starting at the beginning of the entire exhaust system may indeed yield more than 20% overall.  I'm very interested in a set, as these will give my build a true "full exhaust" and equally interesting to me is what the sound enhancement will be.  Win (flow) Win (complete exhaust system) Win (sound enhancement) Triple Threat

08/09/2019 --- Ordered the new PTU replacement and the Police Interceptor alternator for my SHO.

BOTH are due in early next week.

Alternator will sit and collect dust so to speak, while other aspects keep chugging along.


Can you confirm PI 220 amp alternator works and fits and works 13 sho w/pp?

All indications I've seen thus far, yes.

I won't know definitively until everything gets reassembled.

I'll repost when that occurs to provide you with confirmation.

Well. Taking advantage of an unusual, near 50 degree here in CHItown, I opted to wash the SHO for the literal 1st time since April of 2019.

Boy, was she filthy AF. Just take a look.....

Glad to have been able to clean her up.

Placed an email inquiry to x35 Designs, in regards to their new product offering (Phenolic Spacers) and expressed willingness to pay in full immediately, to facilitate a quick turn around.

Also, received data from the machine shop owner this morning regarding flow data on BOTH the Intake, and the Exhaust ports, for all of the extreme custom porting work that has been performed on my heads.

The data displays 'BEFORE' and 'AFTER' #'s for public consumption. I have been told this improvement (a nearly 26% increase on the intake side, and 44% increase on the exhaust side) is projected to provide an 80 to 85hp improvement on just this one modification alone.

Getting more excited as the clarity and culmination of several months worth of work, is beginning to show HUGE improvements in many areas.

Hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start! Enjoy! (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200127/84e4f8a6ceba46c655db632c358a9dec.jpg)

Heads are nearly complete.

Machine shop owner began researching cams, and pretty much came up empty handed.

As such, we have decided to roll with custom, upsized/enlarged valves, to make up for a slight anticipated cfm loss from a replacement stock cam not being able to hit the peak flow #'s achieved from the custom porting.

The aforementioned netting us a slight gain. Which is great.

Having a few more items thermal coated.

Assembly work beginning soon, and more engine porn pics should be forthcoming.

Re-visited / re-discussed turbo's again. Still being told to stay put with the ATP's (for now). There's some curiosity in where they'll max out as it relates to my build specifically.

The expectation is we will max them out, and when that occurs, we'll re-approach and will go with a completely custom, one-off turbo set up in the future. Which is fine, as it'll give me time to work more O.T. and save up $$$$$. Likely have to modify the DP's at that time as well.

Ummm..... what else?

Being told the trans vendor's waiting on a few more parts. But it's coming along. Also was told that the trans was in much better shape than the vendor anticipated. Stated there was some minor scoring on the trans pump itself, but otherwise, all else checked out good. Still, the trans vendor knows my desired goals, and is doing their best to build something decent that'll take the anticipated abuse. Fingers crossed.

Received the UPR dual OCC. All aspects of the kit appear well built, beefy/sturdy.

Looks like we'll be rolling with an SCT based tuning device. Likely gonna get the 'Livewire +TS' or whatever the latest offering is.

A continued work in progress. I'll post pics as they are provided to me. Hope everyone's doing well.

Awesome stuff Mike!!! Super stoked to see how this build comes out. Good to see someone pushing the platform even further(oh wait, you have been doing that since the start lol!) and hopefully produce some new exciting stuff the rest of the community to snap up.

Interesting about the cams? You might want to ping Matt Robinson at Gearhead... just saying...

Also, I might hit you up outside of this forum, but I am REALLY interested in what your trans shop is cooking up...

Apparently not..... but I'll be sure to pass along to them.

Any direct product link by chance?

Thank you in advance! Truly appreciated.

Thank you to all who have provided suggestions regarding cams.

I have consulted with (and have passed along the info to) my builder, who replied that he will research and crunch #'s so to speak, to potentially make use of whatever is best for my application specifically.

Pistons have been completed and pics provided earlier today. Chugging along on the train of progress.

Received these pics and info from machine shop today. Factory/OEM on the left. Upgraded on the right.

"The new valve springs have arrived with a seat pressure of 67 ftlbs and open pressure of 140 ftlbs. Factory spring pressure was 51 ftlbs seat and 95 ftlbs open. The added spring pressure is too aid in the added boost pressure on the back side of the valve's and also for the slight added weight with the oversized valves. Too guarantee it will never have valve float." ----shop owner(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200212/c0f31fe7b991f821fbcab5753e454198.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200212/c84f4ab15e30f284e9abc1caf550722d.jpg)

Recv'd some pics from the engine builder/machine shop owner today.

Block has been milled/polished and have been told that the short block portion of the re-assembly should be on track to begin by week's end, or by next week sometime.

Couple of pics of that, as well as a little something something lurking inside that cardboard container.

As Brad Pitt exclaimed toward's the end of the movie SEVEN that he starred in.....

I couldn't agree with you more!

Funny how things pan out with the passage of time.

The builder expressed his frustration at the lighting in his shop, stating he was trying his best to capture that "rainbow effect" on the deck surface, to highlight how it turned out.

My reply to him was that not only was/am I impressed with the end results, but also (and more so) it is so, so, soooooooo much better than the craptastic quality of work executed by the previous vendor when the motor was opened up after its demise, only to see how terrible the machining work alone was, yet alone everything else.

So yes, continuing to count my blessings accordingly.

Pistons have returned from company that performed the coating(s) on them. Looks sharp.

And for those wondering what was in the boxxxxxxx from Pro-Meth. Yes! A multiport/direct port kit from them.

My engine builder has begun the necessary work on milling, welding bungs on, and also bending supply lines. Off to the PC'er for powder coat/thermal coating, then to finish up on that next.

Slowly, but surely. Progress is always great progress. No matter how large, or small.

Hope everyone's doing well. Spring is in it's way! Woo Hoo!

@ DavidS......

I do not know the entire process(es) involved, however I believe there may likely be some information available on their website.

All I do know, is that their 2500 degree coating was not only the highest available, but also the one they specifically recommended for a turbo application design.

Good luck in your research!

Engine builder retrieved numerous parts from powder coater today.

He's leaving most of them packaged up, until ready for install, as he doesn't want to see any of them get damaged.

He did however unpack the intake plenum, as he has to bend the lines and install the individual injectors from the Pro-Meth kit next.

Here's pics of that alone.....(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200310/75284cffc671b048656756813d2fde27.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200310/0d0f59f1524e8d662cb5b1361ed7bc1c.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200310/b59c751d735b68b134ee975170119de9.jpg)

As usual Z......

You my friend are quite observant.

There is a 7th injector that will be being installed closer towards/down by the IC.

The solenoid on top is exactly for what you described. Keep the injectors charged and flowing properly/evenly.

Very good observations.

Of course on the tuning Z. That's a given.

As far as volume goes, typically I would agree with you. But this current build/undertaking is far from typical.

It's implementation has been discussed and gone over with the pro's involved. The volume will be needed. I'll just leave it at that.

Been a lil quiet, yea? Well besides the COVID-19 pandemic slowing things down, my engine builder also re-injured / re-aggravated his back (sciatic nerve specifically) which was causing numbness in his one leg, and in turn, severely hampering his ability to just simply walk around, yet alone consider performing any work of any kind. On my project, as well as any/all others.

So, in the interim, and thanks to my long time mechanic friend who's also been instrumental in this process, was able to source an existing/used flywheel. Which I've since sent off to an aftermarket vendor for inspection and/or potential upgrading.

Important to note, all 2010's, and 1st half of the 2011 model year's, employ a 4 bolt pattern flywheel. As you see in this pic, it is a 3 bolt pattern. Why the change? Well, the upgraded TQ sourced from GH is a 3 bolt (also shown in pic). Soooooooo the change was necessary for that reason alone, but moving forward, I wanted to be able to convince the vendor I sent the flywheel to, that there would be a larger market for the 3 bolt pattern, as more of them are "out there" versus the 4 bolt. Anyhow, still waiting to hear on that front.

Hopefully should be hearing from the trans vendor soon as well.

I may consider reaching out to DSS for axles and/or drive shaft options. Even if custom. This may be contingent on funds however, as once again, due to the COVID-19 nonsense, all overtime has been eliminated. All secondary employment also eliminated. Alternative, emergency scheduling now in effect, and minimum staffing has been LOWERED to historic levels. So, although I count my blessings for still having a paycheck coming, the pandemic is drastically effecting extra income. Ugh.

Finally, I received the following message from the builder over this past weekend (quoted and highlighted in bold)....

"Block is all final cleaned, prep'd, and final measured. Setting bearing clearances is what we were working on during the week. Piston rings have been filed and fitted. Just need to do the assembly and start gathering more measurements to set final compression and acouple other specifications." ----Max Power

So it seems his back is better now, and he's back at the shop get'n 'er done!

Builder also said he hoped to get some pics sent my way this week as well. So, just a little update. Hope everyone's well, staying safe and healthy, in these trying times.

Are you going to shave the flywheel a bit to reduce rotational mass?  It will feel rougher but help with rpm building.   

Same with the shafts,  I imagine custom CarbonFibre shafts are a bit extreme but they would also greatly help with a reduction in rotational drag.

As many things that can be considered, are.

But as I stated in this latest update, the extra funds from overtime and secondary employment have all but dried up.

Least for the short, to medium term(s). Sucks. But again, counting blessings wherever and whenever they occur.

If this economic shutdown crap continues for any duration, I may just have to start buttoning things up, get it together and running, and proceed from there.

As many things that can be considered, are.

But as I stated in this latest update, the extra funds from overtime and secondary employment have all but dried up.

Least for the short, to medium term(s). Sucks. But again, counting blessings wherever and whenever they occur.

If this economic shutdown crap continues for any duration, I may just have to start buttoning things up, get it together and running, and proceed from there. I likely won't be hitting it right out of the gate anyhow as I'd like to ensure everything's broken in, seated well, and gelling harmoniously.

05/11/20......

Goodness. It's been a minute since any updates have been posted here. My apologies.

Lots of stuff going on at my place of employment as it related to near weekly, if not daily, changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that have caused me to fall behind here.

Well, a mixed bag of updates unfortunately.

Some good, some just meh, is what it is.

So let's see. Transmission. The trans vendor called my mechanic friend and expressed his frustrations at how his State (Michigan) is handling the closures and/or return to opening of normal business. As such, the delays have really placed a hogtie on his ability to receive any parts in a timely manner. Vendor told my friend not to expect anything to be completed until June at this rate.

Which, ironically leads into the motor assembly. That was (clue in on "was") coming along however, builder said that an unexpected quirk arose, in so much as that the WPC Treatment apparently caused clearance issues with the main bearing clearances. It changed them ever so slightly (.0003) which, to my builder was enough of a  concern to prompt him to order up a new set of bearings. He said customarily this variance would be overlooked by some/other builders, but he wants this build to be spot on perfect. He had the new/replacement set of bearings overnighted, and the WPC Treatment on them should be about a one week turn around. Once those return, assembly will resume.

Which given the trans delay(s) really isn't terribly pressing at this juncture. So I sit. And wait. And learn to be patient even furthermore.

On a good note though, the vendor handling the upgraded flywheel emailed me this morning, providing an update that the newly fab'd flywheel has been sent off for anodizing and should be completed in its entirety soon!

Got a couple of other things in the works as well. In the interim, a few neighbor's walking past and enjoying the few warm days we've had here, inquired about seeing the SHO parked in my garage, asking what it was, etc.

I gladly obliged showing them, and all the trophies, plaques and other things on display. They were impressed and said they can't wait to see it done and motoring around. I agreed! Ha.

A little background to this, is that literally each and every one of my neighbor's has their own toy cars/projects etc. So I always smile when entering the neighborhood and see all the new burnout marks and fresh rubber on the pavement.

I did fire up the massive sound system and entertained accordingly. At least I have that still while waiting for the build to progress.

Anyhoo..... hope this update finds everyone well and that each/all of you are safe, healthy, and hoping we all can get back to some semblance of normalcy soon.

You know what, by the feel of my hand it's lighter, but by how much? Not sure.

I need to see if my long time mechanic friend has an OEM at his shop (he has a couple of EB motors, and EB transmission's laying around.

I was slacking and never weighed the OEM I had in hand, prior to sending off to the vendor.

My main concern was strength and ability to handle the power goals I am targeting.

I believe two fellow EB owners have already reached out to them today to express interest and/or place orders.

Yes.  Thats what the fidanza flywheel did for the MTX.  Though the greater contribution is to power handling. Oem ford flexplates are relatively flimsy to begin with.

Completely agree with SHOdded....

Primary purpose of me bringing this to the platform (& doing all the research, leg work, ponying up parts, deposits, and up front costs) was to strengthen what was offered in an OEM format, as well as to handle the power goals I am targeting.

Any ancillary benefits of it being lighter, and/or spinning up faster, less rotational mass etc. is unintentional and doesn't fulfill the primary stated purpose.

I guess as more of them get out there, that data may become available.

Last info I heard, which was a few weeks ago, was that the vendor (who's based out of Michigan) was fighting with the political powers that be, in order to just simply get parts delivered to him. Becoming quite the daunting task from what I understand, as the Governor of Michigan is just as bad as the Governor of my craptastic State.

I do know that he was machining the drum to hold more clutches etc. in order to provide more clamping force. But no real tangible updates beyond that.

As far as my PTU goes, I did purchase a brand new one (despite my old, OEM one being completely fine) and had it dismantled and had the "WPC Treatment" applied to it.

So I am hopeful that that alone will be beneficial in moving forward. As with everything else being performed, I alone will find out eventually. Right?

I'm hoping that that opening line is laden with sarcasm.

Actually I'm quite humble and have always paid homage to those with the talents to do what they do and have contributed their own time, talents, and treasure to this project.

I have begun to realize with the SHO project (more so than any other project cars I've undertaken in the past) really truly how much leg work goes into developing and bringing attention to new product(s).

It's crazy the amount of phone calls, emails, coercing, up front investment, background work etc. that goes into what one sees as a "final product" that allows others to simply click the "add to cart" and then the "proceed to checkout" buttons respectively.

It's important IMHO in keeping the platform moving forward, and allowing all owners to enjoy these niche cars in their own individual experiences.

Thank you for keeping up on the thread. It means a lot. I know this build seems to be taking not only longer than desired, but even longer than I anticipated.

Hopefully great results will come as a result of all the efforts undertaken.

Cheers!

Boundary Racing Billet Oil Pump has arrived!!!

Also went one step further, and had the "WPC Treatment" applied to this piece as well.

No anticipated oil starvation events thanks to this product.

Hope everyone's well and slowly getting back to normal. Whatever normal may be of course.

Now if someone can just convince that stubborn Governor over yonder in Michigan to stop repeatedly extending the "stay at home/shut down" orders, maybe my transmission vendor can start receiving parts deliveries and finish up my custom trans work sometime in this lifetime!

My longtime mechanic friend said he's recently spoken with the transmission vendor. Work is nearing completion. So much so that I was asked if I had a color preference (if any) for the casing.

Also, received an update from engine builder today as well, along with a few pics.

More parts have finally returned from the vendor performing the "WPC Treatment", and as such, more assembly work on the motor has commenced......

New crank (WPC'd as well) installed. Said it spins smooth as butter.

Head bolts properly installed, torque'd etc. (unlike how "L" had them installed, with outer's double washered, inner's no washers at all, what a joke).

Pin on the left is WPC'd. One on the right is factory new/untouched.

Wanted to share the progress. Get'n there. Little bit at a time.

Suffice to say, I have a few other secret squirrelly things going on in the background, that has even the engine builder fairly excited.

Great question!

I haven't been provided with a whole heckuva lot of details on this. However, my long time mechanic friend/pal (who also coincidentally referred me to my current engine builder) has passed along a very few, generic details on this very subject matter.

Now allow me to preface the following with the fact that I had experienced ZERO ISSUES with my original trans (which had about 81k on the clock, and a multitude of track runs, street light drags, as well as DD duties that entire mileage).

But obviously with my targeted goal of "around 1k CHP" I knew damn well I'd be remiss in at least not addressing some aspect(s) of a trans upgrade. No matter what that would entail.

Sooooooo..... I have heard they did a valve upgrade. I also have been told they machined out the drum to install more and/or better clutch packs/clutch plates (for greater clamping force). I also heard they are trying to fabricate a custom pump, as my original presented signs of "minor scoring".

I have purchased the upgraded TC from GH, which is waiting install and collecting dust in my garage.

I also was able to (recently) pioneer the very 1st flywheel upgrade for the platform, which is rated to an SP21 standard, and is also now resting comfortably in my garage and collecting dust/awaiting install.

 I also purchased a brand new PTU (one with a drain) and had that sent off for WPC treatment to strengthen all the internals, even though my original PTU was completely fine and problem free.

Sooooooooo I believe I am (at least on the front end) trying to do my best to attack percieved problems ahead of the fact, and hope those efforts therein, will prove beneficial.

Hopefully that answers at least some of any questions you may have...... ???

The arrangement helped us both out and I am excited to have another piece of the puzzle awaiting install/use.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200823/9c41fa6a8c3b8468701f0e5348140d46.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200823/2615ecc1bddeedc18bcb17f21dc1c2df.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200823/f380459d7ed4e675ab0276757e0d3fec.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200823/ef7a7c28c33710f638e59991458bb3ef.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200823/fba180f5720a351a3038a3c774d0666a.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200823/30d4595f0ee23e26a74c2d94783ac90e.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200823/efe258a947a51d30411620ee81872c21.jpg)

Well a bit of welcome news, if not surprising news.....

Engine builder just sent this text to me within the last hour.......

So now to just get the transmission vendor motivated to finish up on his end and then re-install can at least begin! Woo Hoo.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200906/8523c94e6f3fe78afddd93b8171b9031.jpg)

09/07/2020.....

Another surprise notification from my long time mechanic friend.

He informed me that the transmission vendor returned his phone call, inquiring on the status of the upgraded trans for my SHO.

He was told to expect it to be completed this week. Possibly by this coming Wednesday (09/09/20).

So super excited about that. I did ask if the vendor could supply me with the intimate details of what work was performed. Not only for personal knowledge therein, but equally as important for the tuning vendor when it comes time to/for tuning this developing beast of build.

My pal said he would speak with the vendor again (presumably when the vendor goes to freight it back to his shop) and pass along that query of mine.

Just thought to pass along (yet another) pleasant and surprising developing breadcrumb of news.

Hope everyone's enjoyed their long, Labor Day holiday weekend. I myself am glad I am off today. I've worked 7 of the last 8 consecutive days. I need a break.

Keep staying tuned as more info seems to be on the verge of forthcoming. Thanks for the reads/likes/etc.

Worked the last few days since the last update. Didn't have time to re-post.

Anyhow, received pics from the engine builder and still waiting on the final assembly pics to arrive in my inbox. But I'll share as soon they arrive.

In the interim, a few of the short block assembly having been completed to ogle at for the time being.

No info, or update(s) to share on the transmission front. My long time mechanic friend has been battling with some fairly serious health issues. I'm sending prayers his way so that he successfully recovers/manages from them quickly and safely.

Again, I always share as the info is provided to me. Somber day today. I myself am having reflections of the importance of today's history and the events that unfolded 19 years ago. I created a separate thread on that and I appreciate those that have replied to that, as well as having taken the time to read and reply to this ongoing rebuild thread.

That is a beautiful sight for sure! Glad to see things are finally getting put back together after the extensive rework this block has seen and heads although not pictured. I am quite curious though.. there are no tooling marks? I thought that was the "mark" of all great builders?! LOL...

I CANNOT WAIT to see this come to completion! Any word on the trans yet?

Eek.... I did not realize the engine builder was on vacation again. I have been texting him since the last update for any addt'l pics and then called him today since the texts went unanswered.

Now I feel bad I interrupted him (albeit unknowingly on my part). That said, he was gracious enough to reach out to his partner (who's still at the shop diligently working in the builder's absence) & I was sent the following updated images just a little bit ago.

Enjoy. As I thanked the builder for providing these, I in the same step w/o skipping a beat, told him that it's almost a shame to assemble and install this as all of the efforts undertaken thus far, will not be readily seen.

He's excited though, as am I, at the prospects of what this beast of a build is anticipated to produce.

Happy motoring everyone. Hope everyone's safe, virus free, and managing all of life's ups and downs successfully and in stride.

More info forthcoming. As always, stay tuned..... (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200916/46a95b5ee99546bff2c1f3dae40d40c8.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200916/8a7de51cb200832102f51e34d95824f1.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200916/ede266c99c1deb368fbe2b95047de487.jpg)

Well now. It's been a long minute since I've updated all here.

But I was graciously "allowed" to stop by the engine builder's facility today.

Prior to stopping by, I was asked to bring the following over to the shop:

GH upgraded TC
Reactor Products 1 off custom flywheel
The XDI HPFP60

Which, I must say, that request alone was exciting in and of itself. Why?

Well sh!t on me, that's forward progress lady's and gentlemen.

That said, I also was told that a yet to be disclosed product had arrived recently as well. These are new to the market (like new being within the last 8mo.'s or so).

No f**king specs or details (purposely done so).....however, the pics speak for themselves as far as the observable differences! Ha!

I'm *ABSOLUTELY CONFIDENT* these will facilitate me recapturing *BOTH* the speed, and the power records that I previously held for many years.

No dyno queen here biotches. This s***'s for real, and it's gonna happen. Rest assured on that.

That said, onto the updated pics for all of you whores to ogle at.....

muahahahaha

Engine pics 1st. Then a side by side comparo of the ATP turbo's, next to the new "big boy" turbos from GARRETT. As well as a couple of up close and personal pics of the new "big boy" turbos as well.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201007/c8fc1a8891d891f572a6151c7d93f6f9.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201007/0a1fbe19b267b46cce5bad59db845404.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201007/0d0024d2580a4a6dda384161a086c54c.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201007/c8981d76539939536ba3c82099cf36b2.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201007/8d485e4be35c400d860a5d3a4c5beb52.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201007/d8f0126d6c3a1122ce96e3276f8f4584.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201007/166e354382ea91bf73b67c51ab3f05bd.jpg)

Another exciting update (well one I consider exciting) I got a chance to chat with Mr. Ostmann, owner of XDI earlier today.

Super appreciative of his time, as well as his offer to extend discounted pricing/sponsorship on his company's latest and greatest upgraded fuel injectors.

So happy to be running BOTH his company's HPFP and now INJECTORS too!

Nice to have a seamless product offering across the board that will fuel the monster being developed. Thank you Mr. Ostmann!

Moving along, I will be placing my very slightly used (approximately 300 miles worth of very gentle use in total) Deatschwerks Injectors FOR SALE soon (in a separate thread).

I did have the DW's inspected, cleaned and flow balanced by Injector Experts (Ohio) as I was planning on re-using them myself, until the new injector offerings became available through XDI.

Nice to see so much excitement and enthusiasm about this build. I appreciate everyone's continued interest. A big big project as you all well know, and projects like this just take time. Plain and simple.

As always, keep staying tuned......

Got a hearty laugh out of this email I recieved today (see attached screenshot).

Top dollar they say, huh? LOL

Wonder how much a shell of a 2010 Taurus SHO runs for nowadays? She has a great audio set up in her, and a slew of other new parts to boot.

But missing an engine and trans seems would diminish their "top dollar" offer. Ha!

If I wasn't so busy today, I'd chuck down a few more beers and call them up just for entertainment purposes mind you.

Just wanted to share the laugh. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201008/e3e508e54e7745febb9dc3db8c7cddaa.jpg)

Took advantage of the incredibly nice weather this weekend (Summer of 2020's likely last gasp here in the Midwest) to install my current engine builder's company logo (Max Power Automotive) onto the rear of my SHO's windshield.

Kind of challenging to take proper pics, as there's not much room behind the car and where it's positioned within my garage.

But one gets the point.

Anyhow, should be good for like 100hp+ right?

Mike you gotta kill the chrome!  Color match it white that would he dope!!!!

Meh.........

Not sure about that.

I actually like the chrome.

It's small enough to not be so overwhelming, but more complimentary in design.

It plays off the exhaust tips, and the center caps on the TSW wheels, to tie it in altogether so to speak. Albeit in a subtle way at that.

Appreciate the suggestion though.

10/20/2020......

Not a big update by any means, but I was able to exchange a few texts with Uwe Ostmann over at XDI this morning. Asked him to "take my money" which he obliged and invoiced me accordingly. So the new XDI Injectors have been paid for.

Also, chatted with the engine builder as well recently. He's in the process of making room in his shop in order to accept the shell of my car to be housed there and some assembly / install work being able to begin.

Hoping to get the car out of my garage, and towed over there sometime in November. Certainly hoping to get it there before any snow flies in my area.

So that is all. Hope everyone's well. Seems like the COVID-19 #'s are going up all over the country. Yikes. Not a good sign. But in my own very light research, as it relates to the history of pandemics, there's not once been a "3rd wave". Ever. Of any kind of pandemic.

So hopefully all of us everywhere can manage through what is appearing to be the onset of the "2nd wave" and we can all come out of it ok.

fingers crossed

Awe yeah baby. Lookie lookie at what was delivered to my doorstep just now.

Blazing fast turn around from Uwe over at Xtreme DI.

From invoicing (& me paying said invoice immediately) to packing/shipping and delivery to my door.... a scant, blazing fast 3 days!

Big thanks to Uwe Ostmann over @ XDI.

Super excited to be implementing these inconjunction with the (previously purchased) XDI HPFP60 for my re-build.

**does a happy dance**

More updates as they occur. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201023/651efaca341335b13e440db9449af105.jpg)

11/18/2020.....

Had a chance to speak with the builder yesterday on a newly released product for the platform (a higher volume oil pump) inquiring if that was/is something I should be incorporating into my build.

After discussing, was told at least for me specifically (due to other work already done) to just stick with the OEM part.

That said, the update here today is just to let the community know that the builder has been making progress on other projects of his, and he reported that he has been meeting with success, the making of room in his shop in order to accept the shell of my car into his facility.

He said "likely in a couple of weeks" (from now).

So I was happy with that tidbit of news. Otherwise, not much going on. Have been in a holding pattern since the last update due to the above.

Hope everyone's well, healthy, and safe. Try to enjoy whatever semblance of a Thanksgving y'all can. Cheers
